Dubai features ultramodern skyscrapers along with the Arab architecture of age-old souks, mosques, and royal palaces. Get an overview of the emirate on a guided half-day tour that includes the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, the Dubai Museum, and a traditional mode of transport by water taxi. Pickup and drop-off is included from centrally located hotels.
  • Half-day sightseeing tour of Dubai highlights

  • Ride a water taxi across Dubai Creek
  • Explore traditional souks on foot
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off

After a morning or afternoon (Fridays only) pickup from your centrally located hotel, meet your guide aboard a climate-controlled coach and begin your half-day tour of Dubai’s fascinating heritage. En route to Jumeirah Beach Road you’re introduced to points of interest such as the sail-shaped edifice of Burj Al Arab.

Make a photo stop outside the impressive Jumeirah Mosque, another oft-photographed Dubai landmark. Passing through the Zabeel community, note the opulent architecture of the Shiekhs’ royal palaces and snap pics in front of the home of the ruling family. 

On arrival in the city’s historical center, meander the cobbled streets of the Al Fahidi Cultural Neighbourhood with its traditional architecture featuring wind towers as natural cooling devices.

Gain admission to the Dubai Museum, housed in the Al-Fahidi Fort, the city’s oldest building, which dates back to the late 18th century. See depictions of everyday life while you wander through exhibit galleries on everything from pearl diving  and date farms to souks, mosques, and Arab houses predating the discovery of oil in the UAE.

With your guide, cross the saltwater tributary of Dubai Creek by water taxi, or abra, to browse the old souks selling spices, gold jewelry, and other traditionally traded goods. Your tour concludes with return transport to your hotel.
